The Jeanne Sauvé Foundation is now accepting applications for the 2017-19 Jeanne Sauvé Public Leadership Programme. The Programme is inviting bright young change-makers from a wide range of disciplines and sectors from Canada and around the world to participate in a remarkable leadership experience.

Application Deadline: Friday, 21st October, 2016, MIDNIGHT GMT-4.

Eligible Countries: All

To be taken at (country): Montreal, Canada

Eligible Fields of Study: Candidates between 25 and 30 years of age with backgrounds in the arts, advocacy, communications, journalism, education, engineering, governance, law, politics, security, social innovation and other fields related to public leadership are invited to apply.

About the Award: The Jeanne Sauvé Public Leadership Programme represents the beginning of a lifelong personal and professional development journey, as well as an opportunity to join a global community of public leaders.

For the 2017-19 Jeanne Sauvé Public Leadership Programme, a new cohort of Fellows will collectively explore how focusing on strategies of inclusion can help public leaders respond to the complex challenges facing culturally diverse societies.

The two-year program begins with a full-time residential experience in Montreal with a dozen select Public Leadership Fellows. This is followed by a field phase, in which Fellows return to their respective communities and countries in order to apply the skills and new ideas developed during the residential phase.

Fellows benefit from intensive leadership development training and support during the residential year and some ongoing support from one another and the Foundation during the field year. Thereafter, Fellows are encouraged to remain active members of an emerging community of Jeanne Sauvé public leaders who hail from over 50 countries around the world.

The theme of the 2017-19 Public Leadership Program is Public Leadership for Culturally Diverse Societies: The Inclusion Imperative.
